"I love garlic, and I love chicken cooked in the crock pot (so tender it falls right off of the bones), so this is a perfect combo of the two. I have some cooking in the crock pot right now, and I am longing for it to be done! :-) I never measure the spices, so these are estimates - please feel free to experiment. It is cooked with loads of garlic, so loving garlic is a plus!"

"I placed the chicken legs in a large ziplock with olive oil and minced garlic and gave them a nice coating, then sprinkled the spices on and added the broth. (Added a bit of basil as well.) I cooked it 4 hours on high, then broiled the chicken a few minutes on each side and it was perfect. The aroma it created while cooking was amazing. This is the only way I'll cook chicken in a crock pot from now on - it seems like every other time my chicken comes out dry with a weird aftertaste. I also made gravy out of the leftover juices to go over red mashed potatoes, which was great."
"This was very good! I made it this week and had enough for leftovers. I took the skin off the chicken before cooking and added a little basil (very little) in addition to the rosemary. I plan to share this recipe with my sister. Thank you for posting it!"
"We love this recipe. I just mix the spices and oil together and pour it on the chicken, and it comes out great. I've made this using boneless chicken thighs, and a combo of garlic scrapes and dried roasted garlic. It was a really easy meal, and delicious. Thanks!"
"This makes an easy, flavorful and tender chicken leg. So easy! I put my chicken legs under the broiler in my oven for a few minutes to make the skin crispier, which I think sealed the deal. Delicious!"
"Very tasty! The only change I'd make is to take the skin off of the chicken before cooking. Thanks!"
"My husband liked this but I didn't, my legs were overdone and falling off the bone. They were tender, which was great, but they were not very appetizing and in a pool of fat and broth. If I made this again I'd take the skin off the legs before cooking and cut the cooking time way down. Partly it may be because I have a relatively strong slow cooker."
"THis is a great recipe! Was ready in 5 hours on high! I definetely will be doing this again. I also made it with a nice side dish Recipe #1481513, Balsamic Tomatoe Couscous! This went sooo well together, thanks for the wonderful supper."
"Super Good, Super Easy! The seasonings were so good that two days later I put the same stuff on a nice big pork roast in the crockpot - also deeelicious!"
"First of all I want to say thank you for sharing this recipe.This is a good one and very forgiving when adapted. I used chicken tenders instead of legs and chopped garlic because that is what I had on hand. I also did not measure the spices just sprinkled them over the top of the pieces. Considering the italian seasonings I think next time I will dip the chicken in a good olive oil before seasoning and may even include some chunks of sweet italian sausage along side the chicken in the crockpot.Thanks again."
"The chicken didn't come out of the crock pot with the most attractive colour, so I sprinkled on a bit of paprika and put it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the skin. That helped with the colour! The family voted this as 4*. I will make it again, but will add more spices including a few dashes of paprika. Thanks for the easy recipe."
"It cooked beautifully and produced a lot of oil. The texture of the chicken was great and the smells from the rosemary and garlic were delicious. However, it was quite bland. Next time when I make it I'll add in a full teaspoon if not a little more."
"I used thighs and legs. I bought them connected and cut them myself, saving a couple bucks. I braised them in my Dutch oven using light olive oil, then deglazed is using the chicken stock. I emptied the remaining oil but mostly juice out and poured it over the chicken then sprinkled the spice mixture over it. I used Turkish smoked paprika and cayane pepper instead of the flakes. Steamed up some basmati rice and wala!!! Awesome!!!"
"I'm not a fan of dark meat or cooking chicken in crock pot, but this was fantastic! Used a dash of basil and less salt then called for and had to add a bit more stock because of using more then 6 legs. Was a hit with those in my house who usually don't eat legs. This is a keeper."
"Good garlic broth. Here's what I did different: I used 2 split chicken breasts (because I prefer white meat) with the skin removed. I added garlic powder to the seasonings on the chicken and used fresh basil instead of dried rosemary. Smelled wonderful while cooking. I think it definitely helped that everything was fresh. put some thickener in the broth to make a basil garlic gravy for my rice. Also served a fresh salad and took the garlic out of the pot and smeared it on some french bread with butter. Simple dish. As the poster stated, great to experiment with."
"What a great, fast and simple recipe. I used chicken thighs and had it cooking while I was at work for about 10.5 hours on low. The meat fell off the bone and my apartment smelled great. I would recommend this to anyone as a quick yummy meal.
Next time I would like to add some veggies!"
"I have never made (or eaten) chicken legs so I was looking for a recipe that incorporated other ingredients I love - GARLIC!
I made 8 legs because that's what was in the package and took the skin off. I used too much pepper (the measurements given were too little to coat all the legs) and I used an entire can of broth.
It smelled awesome and was very easy to prepare. The chicken was moist and fell right off the bone. My fiance didn't even bother to use a fork and ate 4 legs. He said I HAVE TO make this again - it was delicious.
Next time I'll tone down the red pepper and take the garlic out of the skin before I serve since it was a bit hard to swallow.
I'm afraid that if I take the garlic out of the skin before cooking it will just disintegrate - maybe I'll try half and half and see what happens."
"I've made this twice now and think it's pretty good! Made as directed both times, using fresh Rosemary for dried. The smell that radiates through the house is wonderful! My husband, however, isn't particularly wild about chicken or any meat still attached to the bone. Unfortunately, since it's just the two of us, I probably won't make it again (at least I got a 2nd time in). I certainly recommend it to others."
"The whole family enjoyed this. Even the picky seven year old. I used one whole bulb of garlic which was about 12 or 13 cloves then sprinkled some jarred, chopped garlic (to make it close to 20) on top after putting the seasoned chicken in the crock pot. Jacked the pot up to high for the first 90 min. then backed it down for the remaining amount of time. Cooked just shy of 8 hours. So yummy and moist. Not dried out at all. Thanks so very much for posting something NOT bbq/sweet & sour!"
"LOVE IT! Love garlic, the kids love chicken legs, and I love how easy this was. I used skin on chicken legs, and did not have the fat accumulation that other reviews talk about. I didn't have a lot of fresh garlic on hand, but used a mixture of fresh and powdered garlic. Would actually use more powdered garlic next time. I up'd the stock and the seasoning because I cooked about 15 legs, 8 hours on low. Love it, love it!"
"OMG, is this good. As others did, I put the herbs, oil, and chicken in a ziplock to coat. I added basil, oregano, and tarragon as well. 5 legs were cooked on high for 3 hours, then 2.5 hours on low. They came out perfect. I saved the juice and several garlic cloves to pour over whole wheat pasta-supremo! Thanks for sharing."
